Brienne is just epic on all levels! + some characters change dramatically from one book to another- you'll be surprised. Pretty much every single character goes through their own dark journey.

I could never watch GoT with another adult around me- it just gets so awkward sitting there watching those heavy sex scenes with someone else. Seriously that Lesbian + Littlefinger scene was just unnecessary. Btw

So, since books 4 and 5 are like that do you think they'll merge them for the HBO show so they can include all the characters in each season? They could still get 2 seasons out of both books.. or maybe even more than 2 if there is enough content there.
edit; I mean if books 4 and 5 take place at the same time.. which I obviously don't know yet if they do, but I assume so.

I really need to read more than 1-2 chapters per night because at this rate I'm never going to be done with it. I've not even got to the end of episode 1 yet. :toofunny: Going to make it a goal of mine to read at least 4 tomorrow. It's not that I don't enjoy reading them, but I start it so late at night, so at the end of 1 or 2 chapters I'm then super tired and really can't continue reading. Absolutely loving the book.

Haha, yeah.. I feel awkward with make out scenes around adults, so these HBO full out naked sex would be unbearable with an adult near me.

That picture. :toofunny: Well, now we know what's going to happen when they say they'll talk to them when they get back..

Yea this is what I was thinking:
Book 1= Season 1; Book 2= Season 2; Book 3 Part 1= Season 3; Book 3 Part 2= Season 4; and then
Books 4 and 5 together= Season 5 and 6.

by the way, Yet another Trailer for Season 2 !

All these promos are so flawless!, only about a third of the way through the second book right now, but from what ive read here and there about the future books your breakdown seems pretty accurate. (Although i must say i do regret spoiling myself about whats probably going to be the season divide in the swarm of swords)

Depending on the timing on future books, they could almost spread books 4 and 5 across 3 seasons if the show was catching up too fast too

That's a possibility too. What I fear about this series is that the general audience won't be able to warm up to all the new characters that get introduced in each book- and there's many that get introduced. Plus each character has their own major storyline and I fear that the audience may simply not "care" about certain storylines as much as fans of the books series do. Yea some characters cross paths along the way, but most are literally out there on their own, so we'll see how this works out. Also a few pages back, I posted a LittleFinger interview where he mentions that he signed up for 6 seasons of GoT so...

In that "Love" trailer, I see Littlefinger talking with the Tyrell girl.... and Catelyn with Renly.... so I guess now I understand how Catelyn and LittleFinger cross paths. I can totally picture her saying something like: "You promised me that you will help us.." and **** will go down. :cool:

Thanks! The second I read that in Dance with Dragons, I fell in love. Kind of impressed with Martin for it, tbh. Don't get me wrong, he's a good writer, but he never really writes amazing quotes like that.

Agreed. His writing is rather simple, but I suppose that makes it better for younger folks to enjoy as well. Btw, I just ran into these small "interviews" from a couple of GoT characters:

Oona (Jeyne Westerling)

Another new cast member for Game Of Thrones Season 2, Oona Chaplin takes on the role of Jeyne Westerling – a character almost impossible to discuss without spoilers – although her increased role in the show is one of the first major departures from George RR Martin’s source material, and a sign that Game Of Thrones is going to increasingly follow the trajectory of The Walking Dead and True Blood and keep even fans of the written material on the edge of their seats.
“Well, there has been much speculation on the Jeyne that I’m playing all I’ll say is you guys are in for a big surprise,” teased Chaplin at at the launch party for Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Series on DVD and Blu-ray. ”There may be some canoodling involved, we can definitely say there is a kiss with a certain lovely gentleman who we’ve seen in the trailer.
“Even though the series is based on the books,” she continued, “there’s so much going on on screen and there’s so much that’s missed out from the books, so it’s like they’re two different things.”
Having recently held supporting roles in BBC’s Sherlock and The Hour, Chaplin is one of the many rising stars in Game Of Thrones’ amazingly strong cast.
“It’s incredible, really,” said Chaplin of being involved in the show. “It’s such a major production and on my first day there was something like 150 extras. It was terrifying but just as exciting and wonderful.
“I wasn’t actually aware of the books before we started filming but now I’m well into the third and I’m like ‘Aaaargh!’”


Sophie (Sansa Stark)

Speaking exclusively to SciFiNow at the DVD/Blu-ray launch for Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Season (out 5 March 2012, priced £25.99 and £36.99), the Stark girls, Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Maisie Williams (Arya) dropped a few teasers as to what to expect from the second series.
“Season 2 is going to be bigger and better than the first one, definitely,” enthuses Turner.
Although there’s been an influx of new cast members, this has come at the expense of those killed in Game Of Thrones Season One – including Lord Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark (Sean Bean), the on-screen father of Sansa and Arya Stark.
“It was a shame to lose Sean,” agrees Turner. “We’ve got a lot more cast members now but he was family!”
“We had such a close relationship with him that it was nice having him there,” picks up Maisie Williams, “and it was sad to see him go.”
While Arya reacted to the events of Game Of Thrones Season 1 with a pragmatism that her father would have approved of, Sansa increasingly found herself stuck between a rock and a hard place, manipulated by the Lannisters into turning against her kin.
As her bethrothed, the increasingly cruel Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) tightens his grip, Sansa will start to draw a line, promises Turner, and hopefully keep viewers from screaming at the screen in annoyance.
“Sansa, I think, really has a rough time in Season 2 at the hands of Joffrey, but she grows a lot stronger,” the actress confirms. “In the first season some people saw her as a bit annoying, a bit snotty – I personally didn’t! I think this season you’ll start to like her.”


Leslie (Ygrette)

Another incoming character, Downton Abbey‘s Rose Leslie plays Ygritte, who encounters Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and the Night’s Watch as they head North of the Wall in Game Of Thrones Season 2, to find out what became of Snow’s uncle, Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle).
“She’s a Wildling and she comes from north of The Wall,” explained Leslie to SciFiNow, “so she’s from the True North where it’s incredibly cold. She’s lots of fun, she’s level-headed and strong – very, very strong – and she has a lot of fun teasing Jon Snow.
“She gets a lot of entertainment out if him, she can’t understand him and she can’t work him out and she goes through a whole process of trying to work out who this boy is.”
As part of Jon Snow’s storyline, she was whisked to Iceland where the production was reduced to shooting in a narrow window of four hours daylight, thanks to the country’s polar winter.
“It was freezing!” exclaimed Leslie. “Every few days we’d be up there on a mountaintop and there’d be a blizzard, it’d be like -26!”


Nikolaj (Jaime Lannister)

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays the somewhat sinister Jamie Lannister is notoriously tight-lipped on the subject of Game Of Thrones Season 2, but he did let loose one telling snippet – his favourite episode is Episode 7, and when pushed for details on the basis that everyone’s read the books, he countered, “I don’t think it’s in the books! I can’t really say any more.”
Speaking exclusively to SciFiNow, Coster-Waldau revealed that he’s given some input into the role of the literal golden boy, but not much.
“I don’t kid myself,” said the actor frankly. “David Benioff and Dan Weiss, they’re so brilliant that it would be absurd to try and suggest changes. I talk about it, but I don’t come with little handwritten dialogues that I suggest.
Talking more about the character, he continued, “He’s not evil, I don’t see him as evil. He does some acts that are quite horrible, but there’s a good reason behind his actions.
Of course there are a lot of things where you go, ‘He’s having sex with his sister…’, but you can’t think about that – you just go ‘he’s in love with the wrong woman’. He just picked the wrong woman, and we’ve all fallen for someone we shouldn’t have.”

I really hope Weiss and Benoiff stick close to Matin's books... I don't mind a few changes here and there but...

Hmm... I just saw some of the images from that Graphic novel- not liking them + it looks like one of those Comic Book things- not a fan of those either. This just in: Press release:

EMMY®- AND GOLDEN GLOBE-WINNING HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES BEGINS ITS SECOND SEASON APRIL 1

War is coming to Westeros. As the cold winds rise and five kings vie for power, bonds are forged and broken, identities are challenged and romance blossoms. With the stakes higher than ever before, who will survive the chaos to claim the Iron Throne?

Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, GAME OF THRONES is an epic drama set in the world of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land whose summers and winters can last years. The Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning fantasy series begins its second season SUNDAY, APRIL 1 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by other episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time.

Created and executive produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the ten-episode second season of GAME OF THRONES plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter – the season of the white raven. In King’s Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and his uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King.

But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. Robb Stark, son of Ned Stark, the slain Lord of Winterfell, seeks autonomy in the North and has taken Cersei’s brother Jaime prisoner in battle. Daenerys Targaryen looks to shore up her depleted power in the East with her three newborn dragons. Stannis Baratheon, brother of the late King Robert, rejects Joffrey’s legitimacy and aligns with a powerful priestess to raise a naval attack. And Renly, Stannis’ charismatic brother, has maintained his own claim since fleeing King’s Landing.

In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall, adding fresh perils for Jon Snow and the order of the Night’s Watch. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, the second season of GAME OF THRONES will be a thrilling journey through an unforgettable landscape.

Returning cast members include: Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Aidan Gillen (Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Richard Madden (Robb Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) and Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane).

Also returning for the second season are: Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Conleth Hill (Varys), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), James Cosmo (Commander Mormont), Sibel Kekilli (Shae), Donald Sumpter (Maester Luwin), Ron Donachie (Rodrik Cassel) and Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon).

New cast members in the second season include: Stephen Dillane (Stannis Baratheon), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Carice van Houten (Melisandre), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte).


They also released the summaries for Ep. 1-5, but I won't post them here.

Oooh, this interests me! The only graphic novel I've ever read was Watchmen, but I would be open to reading this one as well.

So I'm about half way through the book now, loving it even more than the first.

There were a few things I was wondering about though, firstly considering the age of the actress that plays Sansa, I am assuming a certain scene will be toned down a little. But even by HBO's standards do you guys think Theron's early adventures will be depicted as they were in the book?

Also do you think that they will be bringing some of danaerys stories earlier into the book considering the lack of her storyline in the early parts, and how much of a loved character she is. ( if I recall hers was the one that was most out of sync from the book in the first series too)

I'm actually thinking they'll combine the 4th and 5th book into one season, tbh. I could be wrong though. I just didn't see much necessity in a lot of scenes in FfC and DwD.

I'm loving the Renly/Loras love! I wish they went into that detail in the books. I didn't see many implications of it in the books. I wonder if Martin outright told the producers or they just assumed.
